Habitat is now Open Source!

Lucas Art's Habitat was a very early attempt at online community/rpg, a bit like Sierra's ImagiNation Network.

Now, the Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment has managed to collect the source code for Habitat and released it on GitHub. Hopefully they'll be able to make the server operational again and we'll be able to enjoy this piece of computer history.

Oh my, I never knew this was a thing, did LucasArts ever try to make anything else similar, closer to INN through it's (INN's) run?
